Update Clojure to the Latest Version

I am returning to CodinGames after a bit of a hiatus. I now develop professionally in Clojure.

I have invited some of my team members to complete a multiplayer competition with me, but was disappointed to find out that CodinGame only supports a fairly outdated version of Clojure. I am sure they will encounter frustration with the same thing.

Would it be possible to switch to use the latest stable version of Clojure, 1.8? https://clojure.github.io/clojure/clojure.core-api.html

Clojure being a relatively young language, they have added a lot of great quality of life features and functionality that makes the more recent versions far more enjoyable to program in. Clojure has excellent backwards compatibility. I’m not aware of anything that would break by updating to a newer version of the language.


i’d like to add that in here: https://www.codingame.com/ide/puzzle/ghost-in-the-cell the default clojure code template simply times out:

Game information:
Timeout: the program did not provide 1 input lines in due time… keymone will no longer be active in this game.

Clojure on codingame definitely needs some love

hum, indeed there is a big issue with Clojure. Sorry!
We’re looking into it
